DETAILS PER LAP
JDekker7 not aware of Stef's hotlap resulting in a collision and a grid penalty. Warning will be added for JDekker7.
Great start, no incidents in the first few corners. Well driving all.
JPotti crashes. First SC is out.
During this SC, WTZFLEX drove forward with impunity. This to everyone's surprise. The explanation is the reports during the SC. At that moment this message went off, WTZFLEX assumed the race was continuing.
Never the less, seeing the footage, this yellow flag situation was still active:
If this yellow flag warning is active, no passing is allowed. Passing is only allowed when this message is seen:
Since there was no penalty given by the game, WTZFLEX assumed everything was okay. Also because of the fact Lexidas waited for a very long time before he resumes the race.
To avoid this in the future races the guide will be updated to mention that passing is not allowed at all times if the yellow flag caution sign is active. Even if the games allows it. WTZFLEX apologies for this incident even if he wasn't aware of any harm done.
Second SC. RStoffie crashes.
DETAILS PER DRIVER
During the first SC you hit RStoffie and caused damage on his car. In L9 on the long straight you pushed Stef into the wall. Just to get that good exit into turn 1. Also damage for Stef. Two incidents in one race, three warnings so far. A licence point is added. Please pay attention Berry. The biggest concern of other drivers is your driving style. Please try to lower that concern. It's important for the league quality.
From back to front. Nice to see this performance. Keep going!
That was better! No rush! :-)
It looked like you were in the same train as your teammate. Also it looked like you had the same setup. Both of you struggled with grip as you had troubles keeping the car on the racing line. Your are both great drivers and we hope to see Alpha Tauri score some more points next races!
Connection is better but sometimes we can see a red cross above your car. Can you explain your connection status?
New Ferrari driver. Admits Azerbaijan isn't his type of track, but promises better times are coming. Good to have you on board!
Two street-circuits in a row.
With the update of F1 2021 some drivers experienced a different type of driving / handling. Time trials were reset and drivers had to get used to the new handling. The new update has not solved the Thrustmaster drivers / force feedback problem. A lot of drivers have issues with the wheel. This can ruin the race of race of others. This is out of control of the league. The only thing we can hope for is that they will fix the problem soon. Tip is to keep your wheel firmware drivers up to date.
Session quality was good, good connection. DHR Graat had some lag, that could have caused the collision with Huub. DHR Graat told us to use a wired connection in the future so that problem is solved. JPotti fixed his connection problem of last weeks. Thanks for that.
There were some discussions on the Xbox chat about incidents. Always try to stay focused on the session and try to minimise messages as they can't solve the incidents at that point. Send it to the host and he will take action if needed.
Please check the standings and clips for your information. See you in Canada next week!
